Henry,

There is something vaguely familiar about this name ( John Watson Douglas, born in Ferryden,) - but I cannot put my finger on it - yet!

There are/were several Douglas families in and around Montrose, with the Douglases of Glenbervie, and the Earls of Forfar not being far away.

Watson is a name used by the Earl of Morton at about that time, so there is lots to work on.

I am sure we can crack this one!

Welcome to the Douglas Archives Community Network, Henry.

Can you tell us which line you are researching, and the earliest known ancestor that you have traced? This may enable others to help your research.

Yours aye,

William
 
 
 

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
